are paying them. i can't believe we can't use the marines in these situations. someone has got to do a cost benefit analysis. can you imagine the amount of money we have spent fooling around with these contractors that weren't getting the job done? can you imagine the time we have spent on this and the money that has been spent? i would like for you, general, to talk about the cost benefit of putting marines in our embassies and why in the world this is hard for us to get our arms around and where is the analysis that shows us we are saving any money. >> just to react briefly to what would be necessarily a much longer conversation. the marines are not -- that's not their role or what they do for the nation. could it be at some point potentially? i would hate to think we would make that decision based on costs but it would require a longer conversation. >> i guess my point is god forbid we have something happen in kabul. this would look like child's play if you look at the history of what's gone on in terms of the guard force at kabul. and you know, i want to be to rt would be necessarily a

. and that is why it is so important for us to do the report that we did. i will give you a perfect example. you have loan officers at banks being paid bonuses and pay based on how many loans they created. not whether those were good loans. not taking into account whether the loans would later default and caused sick of it and losses. there were a number of different causes of the financial crisis. we tried to bring a lot of transparency to it, to report on that. we are also doing a lot of work in this area to say what has not been dealt with. you are exactly right, fannie and freddie is not dealt with under dodd-frank. but let's talk about dodd-frank for a moment. there have been reforms to our financial system, but there needs to be significantly more. one thing about dodd-frank is it sets up a framework. but ultimately not all of the rules are implemented. there are very important standards that need to be set by the regulators and treasury. because what we are worried about is trying to protect americans in the event of another financial crisis. we do not want to be in a situation where one

better shape to meet the needs of the banking clients in their community. right now, they are telling us, it is not so much too big to fail. they are worried about the cost of dodd frank, which would involve hiring a staff of people to do the work and they say that the big banks can do that better. we hope that congress would look at that. there are a number of other things in the regulatory area that are bad. if they carry it further, it will make it dangerous for community banks to get any in the game. if congress will look at what the real needs are in the banking sector and and perhaps make it a lot easier for community banks, we certainly would like to see them thrive. it is not, from what i hear, that they are too big to fail. they are too small to compete with regulators. >> take a look at the material -- the gentleman who asked the question -- it begins on page 53 or so of the report or its bills of the scale and the hope that this could reach very deeply into institutions. barry, you had a thought on this question? barry is with the commission and, it is with the consumer federa
